My Reemployment Plan Program

The Kansas Legislature recently passed HB 2196, which includes the implementation of the My Reemployment Plan (MRP) program. With few exceptions, any claimant who receives three (3) consecutive weeks of unemployment payments is automatically a part of MRP. Once you are eligible for MRP, you will receive an email or letter via USPS with instructions on the steps you need to take in order to remain eligible for UI benefits.

MRP claimants are required to complete the following items within seven (7) days of being notified of MRP eligibility:

  1. Create or upload your resume in KANSASWORKS.com. The resume must be published so employers can find you.
  2. Complete and submit Job Search Plan form located on this page.

All claimants have a KANSASWORKS.com account created upon filing an initial claim. If you forgot your username or password, try the retrieval methods available here.

If you do not complete these items, KANSASWORKS is required to report that information to the Kansas Department of Labor (KDOL). KDOL is then required to deny UI benefits. When you complete the required pieces, KANSASWORKS will report that information to KDOL and will make a re-determination.

Any questions regarding this program should be directed to KANSASWORKS.com Live Chat. For additional support, contact your local Workforce Center.
